It’s official the 2012 Summer Olympics have begun! It seems, no matter which channel you turn to, you will get coverage or at least an update on the athletes or the shananigans surrounding them.  This may take away from the ‘reality shows’ that have invaded every network.

Tech Review for June 19, 2012

They are calling for a ‘heat wave’ in Toronto, Ontario.  Apparently, we have a name for 3 days in a row that are above 30 degrees celsius. I just spent 3 days in China, average temperature was 32.  Better yet, I followed that with 7 days in Taiwan and  the average temperature there was 35 degrees. Bring on summer!  The only thing better than 3 …

When was the last time you went out of your comfort zone? It’s interesting how many people actually never do. They never take that step to push themselves that extra mile. Some people never venture out of their country, city or neighborhood. If your one of those people I highly suggest you do it. Do it today, plan it for tomorrow, …
